2- As soon as you write your blog post share it with your tribe on the various Social Media platforms. Use URL shorting tools so you can track which platform is most effective for you. Additionally, share it in many different ways so you grab the attention of different target markets.
3- RSS feed your blog to your Facebook page and also Twitter
4- Interact with other blog owners that have relevant interesting topics that compliment or add to your blog
There are other ways I guess but this is what I can think of for now.
